Everyone can think of a few family portraits or photos of themselves that they wish didn’t exist. For example that badly posed family portrait with the cheesy grin and 80’s hairdos, or the ID photo on your drivers licence that makes you look like a drug smuggler.

Looking back at the history of photography, one of the first popular uses the camera was not for abstract art, advertising or landscapes, but for photographing people and their family portraits.

Things have come a long way in the last few years. Avo Photography has transformed the neglected and boring traditional family portraits industry into a contemporary art style, with great results achieved through a fun experience for the whole family.

Our focus in family portraits is on capturing real emotion and creating a piece of you for your wall that give you a warm fuzzy feeling every time you look at it.

Treating your family to an Avo family portrait session is a great way to spend quality time together and create something special for your home. Have a look at our family portrait portfolio:
